I predict jackpot will be 1.8 billion by time of draw. And if it rolls next one will reach 2.5 billion. Let's see how close I get to my predictions.

I like your predictions!

      I'm sick of these drunk on taxation, gold-digging politicians!

      May the balls bounce in your favor!

        ... and the powerball number is 12.  Good Luck and good night.

        "Let's see, yep, got that one, yep those are good, first five good, wow, that a match, what.. the powerball matches too!  WE WON, BABE THEY JUST HAD THE DRAWING AND WE WON!  THAT'S THE BILLION DOLLAR JACK (knock, knock, knock).  Who would be knocking this time of night?  Hide the ticket!  "

        "Sir, we're from the IRS and understand you just won the lottery.  We are here to ensure the taxes are promptly collected.  That will be $500,000,000.00.  Will you be writing a check or we have a credit card terminal with us if you prefer..."

          I'm feeling a jackpot win coming my way!

          If nobody wins tomorrow, how much would the jackpot be?

            If it rolls to $2.5 billion, people will start thinking this is getting out of control. At some point we have to think, is this alright?

              Do you honestly think they will let you remain anonymous if you're the sole winner of $1.5 billion dollars?

                What a scary thought and probably not far from the truth.  I still think they should be dismantled and the sooner the better. Bandit

                        I'm totally with you on that cash thing.

                        I just realized this little 5"x3" piece of paper sitting in front of me could be one of the most valuable pieces of paper in history. Maybe I should take proper care of it, eh?

                           I want this 

                          You couldn't pay me a billion dollars to drive one of those much less own one.  I wouldn't touch that with a billion foot pole.  I am reminded of a lottery winner that went and bought a bicycle with his winnings....How Boring!

                            The winner(s) will get international media attention, which is why I decided to not get anymore PB tickets.

                              Brad Duke.  But it was a $13,000 bike.  Doesn't that make it a little more exciting?
